Editing Events With Registration Enabled

This article will cover editing an event in SignUp after patrons have registered for the event.

Events with registration were originally designed to prevent modifying the date, time, location, and/or space of an event after patrons had registered for the event.  This created a lengthy workaround to adjust an event.  Customers identified this lacking flexibility as a key pain point in event management.  It is not an uncommon need to move an event to a more appropriately sized room and/or different date/time.  In addition to updating the event edit function, a patron notification option was created.

If an event has registrants, a change in the date, time, location, and/or space will trigger the patron notification option.  This function will not be triggered if the setup/take down times are adjusted nor any of the other editable fields (title, event type, age groups, event details, etc.)
